When All This Is Over
April 17, 2021 - May 17, 2021
When All This Is Over is a collection of works on paper and panel created since the beginning of the pandemic. Living and working in San Francisco’s Tenderloin, Chris Stokes saw the neighborhood’s storefronts and commercial buildings quickly transform as Covid, political unrest, and urban flight took hold. Being an artist and architect, he contemplated what the landscape might look like in the future, if people and society did not return. He also envisioned a sense of optimism if they did.
In addition to his solo exhibition, Stokes will be unveiling his design for Luna Rienne Gallery’s new parklet, for which crowd funding campaign will soon launch.

Brighter Days looks forward to a future of hope, love, and peace as the world recovers from a year of intensity with the global pandemic, racial injustice, political unrest, and wildfires throughout California. Ursula Xanthe Young began producing the body of work in the summer, when she typically would be painting murals outdoors at music and art festivals but was sheltered in place. Instead of focusing on negative thoughts and disappointment, she found inspiration in optimism for the future and uplifting music, from which many of the painting titles come.
Into The Light
June 18, 2021 - July 12, 2021
Into The Light explores the pleasure and perils of indulgence through a satirical lens that delights with comedy and beauty. The collection of paintings, drawings, and limited edition prints presents colorful designs in visual loops that illuminate the cyclical nature of desire. Loucheur’s vibrant botanical patterns interplay with images of alcohol, tobacco and THC to present a tension between timeless beauty and temporal intoxication.
Sweet Dreams And Twisted Realities
July 17, 2021 - August 9, 2021
Sweet Dreams And Twisted Realities features recent work by three Bay Area surrealist painters: Eric Johnston, Ingrid V. Wells, and J.L. King. Each with their own style, they meld fantasy and reality through some combination of rendering, psychedelia, color, humor, and absurdity. If the last year has taught us anything, it is that perspectives and perceptions vary widely; this exhibition presents three ways of seeing the world around us.
How To Know You Are A Fairy
